Intro to the Mitchell area: it is not all corn fields. The northwestern quarter of Nebraska is beautiful, with rolling hills and right behind the wool mill, sandbluffs. You can see the line of bluffs in the background here. I chose a winter shot because right now it is about 100 degrees and we need some hope of cooler weather.
Mitchell, Nebraska - our hometown!
Where did your yarn come from?
OK, reach over to your basket or shelf or pail and grab that skein of Brown Sheep yarn. Got it? Nice. Know where it came from? Mitchell Nebraska right? Sort of...
On a mountain slope in Colorado live several herds of 80,000 sheep. They spend their days growing soft wooly coats. When the ranchers shear them, we have an order in to buy the dirty greasy wool. It is shipped in giant bales to our factory.
